i think most of your problems arise because u have no direct rendering.
u have to use an opengl card with dri support like matrox g400 etc..
u can find the supported cards + more info at dri.sourceforge.net. 

once u have a working dri environment gem should load without the 
"could not create context blah .... " (i dont have the correct error in my

with the commandline command "glxinfo" u can look up if u have direct
rendering or not.
